@DJ, I posted earlier on the EMIC2 voice module, something is wrong with SendSerial, it's causing the EZ-B to reset as well as tested on two dfferent ez-b modules and a serial lcd module.


I see days of coding have left ya a bit scruffy. :)


Winter's coming fast up dar in Canada, ya know hay. Ya gotta grow da beard ta keep warm! :P

Seriously DJ, thanks for all the hard work and great upgrades!

Thank you so much DJ for all hard work, I am very happy with all the latest improvement in ARC. Would it be possible to add cut, copy and paste capability in EZ script in a future update?
